The origins of Stonehenge: new discoveries and fresh perspectives | Institute of Continuing Education (ICE) skip to content

Institute of Continuing Education (ICE)


Please note that this course has started and enrolment is no longer possible.

Drawing on recently found evidence for there being a substantial and long-lasting Mesolithic presence in the pre-Stonehenge landscape, we will explore the evolving uses of this landscape through the Mesolithic period and examine the relationship between them and the later establishment of the Stonehenge ritual landscape. Is this presence the reason why Stonehenge is where it is – its discovery the discovery of the cradle of Stonehenge?


Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.
